@joannahickson Well, a bit sour, but I thought that was the taste of blackcurrants. Very confusing.

It turns out I've never eaten a blackcurrant. I've eaten HANDFULS of Elderberries, yes. Toxic? Cyanide, Apparently. Explains a lot, this.

Wars of the Roses

King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead.

In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king - Henry depends on his closest men, Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, to run his kingdom.

The Wars of the Roses series will be a benchmark for historical fiction, showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest.

The Emperor Series

Emperor is a five-book military adventure series based on the life of Julius Caesar, beginning somewhere around 92 BC and finishing with Caesar's assassination on the Ides of March in 44 BC. The two main characters, Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus, are historical. Other important characters are fictional. The strength of the Emperor series is in its spectacular action set-pieces. Gladiatorial combat, pirate attacks, ambushes by robbers, street riots, and battles by land and sea in Greece, Gaul and Spain.
